EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 3.0.2.0 : freetype (EulerOS-SA-2020-1224)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 134513
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the freetype package installed, the EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- The FreeType engine is a free and portable font rendering engine, developed to provide advanced font support for a variety of platforms and environments.
FreeType is a library which can open and manages font files as well as efficiently load, hint and render individual glyphs. FreeType is not a font server or a complete text-rendering library. Security Fix(es):The t42_parse_encoding function in type42/t42parse.c in FreeType before 2.5.4 does not properly update the current position for immediates-only mode, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a Type42 font.(CVE-2014-9747)In Sudo before 1.8.28, an attacker with access to a Runas ALL sudoer account can bypass certain policy blacklists and session PAM modules, and can cause incorrect logging, by invoking sudo with a crafted user ID. For example, this allows bypass of !root configuration, and USER= logging, for a 'sudo -u \#$((0xffffffff))' command.(CVE-2015-9383)FreeType before 2.6.1 has a buffer over-read in skip_comment in psaux/psobjs.c because ps_parser_skip_PS_token is mishandled in an FT_New_Memory_Face operation.(CVE-2015-9382)FreeType before 2.6.1 has a heap-based buffer over-read in T1_Get_Private_Dict in type1/t1parse.c.(CVE-2015-9381)In FreeType before 2.6.1, a buffer over-read occurs in type1/t1parse.c on function T1_Get_Private_Dict where there is no check that the new values of cur and limit are sensible before going to Again.(CVE-2015-9290)The parse_encoding function in type1/t1load.c in FreeType before 2.5.3 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a 'broken number-with-base' in a Postscript stream, as demonstrated by 8#garbage.(CVE-2014-9745)The parse_charstrings function in type1/t1load.c in FreeType 2 before 2.7 does not ensure that a font contains a glyph name, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer over-read) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted file.(CVE-2016-10244)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected freetype packages.
